'Women who smoke, end up divorced,' claims PTI MNA [VIDEO]

A lawmaker from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf believes that smoking should be blamed for the increasing divorce rate. However, in this case, smokers are not men but women.

We all know some of the effects that smoking can have on the health including, different cancers, breathing issues, and more. But Member National Assembly (MNA), Dr. Nausheen Hamid, has revealed during a seminar in Islamabad that smoking in women is a cause of increasing divorce rates in Pakistan.

Recently, at a session based on the use of Tobacco, Dr. Nausheen said that women smokers end up divorced. This is because they are not ‘accepted’ by their in-laws. In the same session, she also told that the number of women smokers has increased in the last few years. ‘This causes a number of social problems for both the smokers and their families,’ she added.

Nausheen also revealed that she personally knows such women. The federal parliamentary secretary for health also stated that two out of five people who smoke, are women.
